Celebrated the last day of my old Job and the beginning of a new adventure with a delish bottle of bubbly and some close friends. I usually subscribe to more Blanc de Blanc styles of champagne, but this Blanc de Noirs is killin it. Brut nature, old school champagne house and it shows - beautiful autolysis bready yeasty aromas with a gorgeous baked caramel apple thing going on on the palate. Love this sexy beast. — 5 months ago
This is silly - funky natty pet-nat rose from right here in Texas. Loads of raspberry, mulled berries, spice, and cream. Delicious and gulpable. Off-dry. I’ll tell ya what - this is the first Texan winery to really turn my head and catch my attention.. their whole lineup was solid. Definitely worth checking out, but this was the star. — 6 months ago
This thing has no business being $17. Smoke, charcoal, chocolate, toasty oak, vanilla, and cinnamon.. this is Tempranillo turned up to 11. Still beautiful acidity and color, dense texture with some gripping tannins. I’d give this 5 more years to settle down or decant overnight.. but she’s a beaut for the modest price tag. — 6 months ago
Fun little wine - gamey earthy nose with blueberry, high toned red fruit and distinctly “grapey” notes. The palate has high acid, salinity, and more purple fruit. This wine screams for food. Great for the price however. 50 Syrah, 40 Grenache, 10 Mourvèdre — 5 months ago
Definitely my new favorite champagne. I’ve had two different times now and both times have turned my head and made me think about it for days after. So much complexity and purity here - toasty creamy mousse, meyer lemon sorbet, overripe apricot and marmalade, hint of clove and banana bread, honeysuckle and honey too. The aromatics are haunting. Beautiful texture. It’s got it all. — 6 months ago
